There is plenty of nice steel boats. That is not the issue but if they are the better option for the type of sailing or cruising one does.

Just to remain with American designers look at this design by Ted Brewer:

Ted Brewer has a nice article about steel and Aluminium relative advantages and disadvantages:

Sail Far Live Free - Sailboats, Sailing News, and Gear: The Metal Yacht - Aluminum & Steel Sailboat Perspectives

and from an European designer (Andre Hoek ) this one does not look bad either
